Diluting Essential Oils with Children

Guide for Diluting Oils with Children:

Here is some approximate guides for dilution:

  • 6 months- 2 years: Dilute 4x the label recommendation
  • 2-5 years: Dilute 3x the label recommendation
  • 5-10 years: Dilute 2x the label recommendation

Here is a great link to help you learn more about how to safely use Young Living Essential Oils in your home:

*Keep “Hot” Oils Away from Children:
Oils such as oregano, cinnamon, thyme, eucalyptus, mountain savory, lemon, and orange… or blends like Thieves, PanAway, Releive It, and Exodus II should be stored away from children (although, really, I keep all my oils away from my children!). These are also the types of oils that should always be diluted for both children and adults. If a child swallows an essential oil:
  • Seek immediately emergency medical attention, if necessary
  • Give the child milk, cream, yogurt, or another safe, oil-soluble liquid to drink
